Tasting Our Wines

While we are open for on-site enjoyment with a reservation; wine tastings are not currently available in our tasting room.  However, wine flights are available during your wine tent or bistro reservation.  Additionally, we are now offering reservations for our guided Cellar Experience.

Cellar Experience

We invite you to join us for a perfectly curated wine tasting in our Barrel Room or Production Area for a true cellar to sip experience. Our wine attendant will lead you through an intimate tasting of eight popular wines, behind-the-scenes stories, and wine-making details. Please allow 60-90 minutes for your tasting.

We recommend adding our cheese & charcuterie pairing for a more unique and educational experience (+$15/person).

The cellar is built to keep our wine chilled; we recommend bringing a sweater for maximum comfort.  Although this experience is best suited for 2-8 guests; if you have a group of more than 8 guests please contact our Guest Services Coordinator for more details:, 540.446.2251.

Wine tastings will begin promptly 5 min after your reservation start time. Please note, our bistro menu will not be available for purchase in this area.  If you would like to dine with us before or after your cellar experience, please make a separate bistro reservation.

About Our Winemaker

Although Hope initially graduated college with a Master’s degree in mathematics, she fell in love with winemaking through a temporary harvest position in Washington state.  Hope immediately went back to school and earned her winemaking credentials from Washington State University and worked for some of the best winemakers in the state before finally seeing her name on a wine label for a large vineyard.

Hope’s experience managing the winemaking process at Obelisco Estate, The Walls Vineyards, Artifex Wine Company, and Goose Ridge Estates Vineyards in Washington State has helped to shape her winemaking style and vineyard expertise.  Throughout her career, Hope has processed over 30,000 tons of grapes, launched new vintages, and worked with dozens of different varietals.

Hope is also a proud mom of three kids, with a passion for wrestling and rugby.  Hope is originally from the East Coast having been born in New York and she is excited about coming back and working with Virginia wines.
